Real-Time Reconciliation available on Stripe v2

The Stripe v2 gateway integration in Zuora now supports the Real-Time Reconciliation feature. With this feature enabled, the payment gateway can submit notifications to Zuora for the following event types on gateway objects, and the corresponding records can be automatically updated in real-time.

  • Payment
  • Refund
  • Mandate

To enable this feature, make sure an OAuth token is created and activated for the intended gateway instance in the Gateway Authentication payment setting, and then submit a request to Zuora Global Support with the required information. For more information, see Real-Time Reconciliation for Stripe v2.

For more information about the supported Stripe events and the corresponding actions from Zuora, see Real-Time Reconciliation events for Stripe v2.

Support for refunding payments with credit balance during gateway reconciliation

A setting called Support refunding payments from the credit balance with Gateway Reconciliation is now available in Payments settings. If this feature is enabled, payments with an available credit balance amount can be refunded by using the credit balance during gateway reconciliation. This feature is only available when Invoice Settlement is disabled.

For more information about how to enable this feature, see Refund payments with credit balance in Gateway Reconciliation.

Google reCAPTCHA v3 supported for Payment Pages 2.0

The CAPTCHA challenge feature for Payment Pages 2.0 in Zuora is implemented based on the Google reCAPTCHA service. Google reCAPTCHA v3 is now supported, in addition to the previously supported Google reCAPTCHA v2 service.

To enable Google reCAPTCHA v3, submit a request to Zuora Global Support. If Google reCAPTCHA v2 is already enabled on your tenant, you need to disable Google reCAPTCHA v2 for Google reCAPTCHA v3 to take effect.

For more information, see Configure Payment Pages 2.0.

Deployment Manager available to automate tenant management process

The Deployment Manager feature is in the Early Adopter phase, which provides an enhanced digital experience. We are actively soliciting feedback from a small set of early adopters before releasing it as generally available. If you want to join this early adopter program, submit a request at Zuora Global Support.

Deployment Manager is a new feature to help you migrate metadata objects from a source tenant to a target tenant with minimal manual efforts. With this feature enabled, you can expedite the go-live process with Zuora and deploy frequent changes to Production environments after the go-live. This feature supports the following metadata objects in this release:

  • Settings
  • Notifications
  • Custom fields
  • Workflows

The following diagram provides the high-level flow for using Deployment Manager.
